Project Description

Located in Yarra Junction, in the beautiful Yarra Ranges, the college is home to a recently installed 9 hole disc golf course. The facility is now part of the school’s physical education curriculum and is available for all students in their free time. Staff at the school also enjoy the course and join students for a throw during lunch and recess breaks.

The course was designed and installed by RAD’s Andrew Ferguson, who worked with the school’s Principal Scott Tully to deliver the project. The course was designed to fit in with the existing activities on the school grounds, including a vineyard. The course layout weaves between two main ovals, making use of the tree lined areas and elevation in the hilly ranges. The course features nine RAD Ace permanent disc golf baskets, nine tee signs and a main sign map which displays the overall course layout and how to play information.

Despite being on a school campus, the course is accessible to the public during after school hours. Weekdays – 3:40pm onwards. Anytime on weekends. The added presence of people playing the course after hours will provide a natural added presence on school grounds and help to deter those with mischief on their minds.
